A Little Unveiling

WELCOME TO MY NEW HOUSE!

Honestly, this Blogger to WordPress migration is a lot tougher than I had imagined. But I didn’t want to keep my site down for too long so here is my blog, in its new home. In its bare minimum state.

I have a lot of things to fix, mainly the broken links from the migration and the slightly weird / incompatible post formats between the two platforms. On top of that, I have to tweak and design my new home. It is quite a big learning curve and guess what, I’m ENJOYING it :-) It’s like moving into a new apartment and starting from scratch, and I really like this creative process.

I do have a long way to go and there is so much more I’d like to do with my new space.

Regular posts will be back up and running on Wednesday.

For now, I need a small favour from you…

  • Can you leave a comment below as I’d like to ensure that it works?
  • Can you confirm whether this post shows up in your rss feed reader (if you are subscribed)?

I’m still trying to get around things so I really apologize if the blog looks strange or if the links don’t work.

Thanks, again for all your support and for still reading my little corner in the world :-) I’ll be seeing y’all soon!

Thanks, babe! Sadly, there are loads of little holes everywhere. I’ll probably be picking 5 posts a day to fix and hope I’ll be done in two months’ time ;-)

Thanks, Kahani! You’re too kind :-) I still have a long way to go and the next thing I’d need le hubby to do is to redesign the masthead logo. It looks rather nekkid in this layout.

Thanks for checking, Megan! I can see why you’re happy with the move and hope that after the dust settles, I’ll start getting used to it too :-)
